Running With Nature as Featured in the LA Times!

Running With Nature Ranch TepeeThe Los Angeles Times recently featured Mariel in a special article on her documentary “Running From Crazy” and Running With Nature!

If you’ve been following us for a while now, you’ve no doubt heard of the Hemingway family’s many trials and tribulations. From her legendary grandfather to her supermodel sister, depression and suicide have unfortunately left an indelible mark on the prestigious Hemingway name — a blemish that Mariel seeks to rectify.

In addition to her new documentary film, “Running from Crazy”, this well-known actress has teamed up with former stuntman Bobby Williams to inspire the world over with their book “The Willing Way.” Essentially, this dynamic and romantic duo want you to experience the best life you possibly can.

Perhaps most widely renowned for her Oscar-nominated performance in “Manhattan”, Mariel puts her words into practice at the Running With Nature Ranch in Malibu: essentially a property that doubles as her and Bobby’s home and laboratory. This veritable slice of outdoor paradise includes a humbly-sized 1,100 square foot house, Buddha statues, a smattering of assorted animals, and a spectacular collection of exercise facilities and equipment — and that’s just for starters!

Mariel adores her 51st birthday gift at the Running With Nature Ranch – a two-story tepee with rugs, pillows, and a simple  fire pit valued as a priceless memory-maker. From boisterous stories with “the guys” to comforting reminiscing, this social circle of life, love, and laughs is one of the couple’s most fundamental pleasures in life.

When the pair isn’t enjoying the gorgeous locale and basking in the sun’s radiant aura, they’re climbing rope ladders, playing ping pong, shooting hoops and living healthy and happy lives –but of course, it wasn’t always this way.

Mariel recalls the days when nature was the only refuge she had to escape from a firestorm of alcohol, fights, and mental illness as she recounts in her documentary. The movie star’s life was a roller coaster of ups and downs, from her parents’ nightly “wine time” and fights to an older sister’s  schizophrenia.

This strife spurred her on to look for answers -from gurus in India to unique diets and therapy until she discovered the key at 47 – that the answer was in herself all along.

On the other hand, Bobby has always lived a different life – shying away from “synthetic, processed, and irradiated food” and scrimping through decades of 80-hour workweeks in order to fund medical interventions in later years.

Together they’ve embraced a different path – one full of athletic adventures, herbal epiphanies, and other alternative solutions.

If other people see their choices as a little odd, that’s OK, Mariel says. “We want to inspire people to find the adventure that works for them.”
